GeForce 930M vs GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3

Intro

The GeForce 930M has a clock frequency of 928 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3, which has core clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 will be 78% faster than the GeForce 930M in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 11200 (78%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M is quite a bit (more or less 153%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13472 (153%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 930M is much (about 69%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3024 (69%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
